Query Changes

'GET /changes/'

Queries changes visible to the caller. The query string must be provided by the q parameter. The n parameter can be used to limit the returned results.

As result a list of ChangeInfo entries is returned. The change output is sorted by the last update time, most recently updated to oldest updated.

Query for open changes of watched projects:

Request

        "name": "John Doe"
      },
      "_more_changes": true
    }
  ]

If the number of changes matching the query exceeds either the internal limit or a supplied n query parameter, the last change object has a _more_changes: true JSON field set.

The S or start query parameter can be supplied to skip a number of changes from the list.

Clients are allowed to specify more than one query by setting the q parameter multiple times. In this case the result is an array of arrays, one per query in the same order the queries were given in.

Query for the 25 most recent open changes of the projects that you watch

Query that retrieves changes for a user’s dashboard:

Additional fields can be obtained by adding o parameters, each option requires more database lookups and slows down the query response time to the client so they are generally disabled by default. Optional fields are:

  • LABELS: a summary of each label required for submit, and approvers that have granted (or rejected) with that label.

  • DETAILED_LABELS: detailed label information, including numeric values of all existing approvals, recognized label values, values permitted to be set by the current user, all reviewers by state, and reviewers that may be removed by the current user.

  • CURRENT_REVISION: describe the current revision (patch set) of the change, including the commit SHA-1 and URLs to fetch from.

  • ALL_REVISIONS: describe all revisions, not just current.

  • DOWNLOAD_COMMANDS: include the commands field in the FetchInfo for revisions. Only valid when the CURRENT_REVISION or ALL_REVISIONS option is selected.

  • CURRENT_COMMIT: parse and output all header fields from the commit object, including message. Only valid when the CURRENT_REVISION or ALL_REVISIONS option is selected.

  • ALL_COMMITS: parse and output all header fields from the output revisions. If only CURRENT_REVISION was requested then only the current revision’s commit data will be output.

  • CURRENT_FILES: list files modified by the commit and magic files, including basic line counts inserted/deleted per file. Only valid when the CURRENT_REVISION or ALL_REVISIONS option is selected.

  • ALL_FILES: list files modified by the commit and magic files, including basic line counts inserted/deleted per file. If only the CURRENT_REVISION was requested then only that commit’s modified files will be output.

  • DETAILED_ACCOUNTS: include _account_id, email and username fields when referencing accounts.

  • MESSAGES: include messages associated with the change.

  • CURRENT_ACTIONS: include information on available actions for the change and its current revision. Ignored if the caller is not authenticated.

  • CHANGE_ACTIONS: include information on available change actions for the change. Ignored if the caller is not authenticated.

  • REVIEWED: include the reviewed field if all of the following are true:

    • the change is open

    • the caller is authenticated

    • the caller has commented on the change more recently than the last update from the change owner, i.e. this change would show up in the results of reviewedby:self.

  • SKIP_MERGEABLE: skip the mergeable field in ChangeInfo. For fast moving projects, this field must be recomputed often, which is slow for projects with big trees.

    When change.api.excludeMergeableInChangeInfo is set in the gerrit.config, the mergeable field will always be omitted and SKIP_MERGEABLE has no effect.

    A change’s mergeability can be requested separately by calling the get-mergeable endpoint.

  • SKIP_DIFFSTAT: skip the 'insertions' and 'deletions' field in ChangeInfo. For large trees, their computation may be expensive.

  • SUBMITTABLE: include the submittable field in ChangeInfo, which can be used to tell if the change is reviewed and ready for submit.

  • CHECK: include potential problems with the change.

  • COMMIT_FOOTERS: include the full commit message with Gerrit-specific commit footers in the RevisionInfo.

  • PUSH_CERTIFICATES: include push certificate information in the RevisionInfo. Ignored if signed push is not enabled on the server.

  • TRACKING_IDS: include references to external tracking systems as TrackingIdInfo.

  • NO-LIMIT: Return all results

Changes Submitted Together

'GET /changes/{change-id}/submitted_together?o=NON_VISIBLE_CHANGES'

Computes list of all changes which are submitted when Submit is called for this change, including the current change itself.

The list consists of:

  • The given change.

  • If change.submitWholeTopic is enabled, include all open changes with the same topic.

  • For each change whose submit type is not CHERRY_PICK, include unmerged ancestors targeting the same branch.

As a special case, the list is empty if this change would be submitted by itself (without other changes).

Request
  GET /changes/myProject~master~I8473b95934b5732ac55d26311a706c9c2bde9940/submitted_together?o=NON_VISIBLE_CHANGES HTTP/1.0
  Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8

As a response a SubmittedTogetherInfo entity is returned that describes what would happen if the change were submitted. This response contains a list of changes and a count of changes that are not visible to the caller that are part of the set of changes to be merged.

The listed changes use the same format as in Query Changes with the LABELS, DETAILED_LABELS, CURRENT_REVISION,and SUBMITTABLE options set.

Standard formatting options can be specified with the o parameter, as well as the submitted_together specific option NON_VISIBLE_CHANGES.

'POST /changes/{change-id}/wip'

Marks the change as not ready for review yet. Changes may only be marked not ready by the owner, project owners or site administrators.

The request body does not need to include a WorkInProgressInput entity if no review comment is added. Actions that create a new patch set in a WIP change default to notifying OWNER instead of ALL.

Request
  POST /changes/myProject~master~I8473b95934b5732ac55d26311a706c9c2bde9940/wip HTTP/1.0
  Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8

  }
Response
  HTTP/1.1 200 OK

A message can be specified in the request body inside a PrivateInput entity.

Request
  POST /changes/myProject~master~I8473b95934b5732ac55d26311a706c9c2bde9940/private HTTP/1.0
  Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8

  {
    "message": "After this security fix has been released we can make it public now."
  }
Response
  HTTP/1.1 201 Created

If the change was already private the response is “200 OK”.

Unmark Private

'DELETE /changes/{change-id}/private'

Request
  DELETE /changes/myProject~master~I8473b95934b5732ac55d26311a706c9c2bde9940/private HTTP/1.0

If the change was already not private, the response is “409 Conflict”.

A message can be specified in the request body inside a PrivateInput entity. Historically, this method allowed a body in the DELETE, but that behavior is deprecated. In this case, use a POST request instead:

Request
  POST /changes/myProject~master~I8473b95934b5732ac55d26311a706c9c2bde9940/private.delete HTTP/1.0

  }

Ignore

Request
  PUT /changes/myProject~master~I8473b95934b5732ac55d26311a706c9c2bde9940/ignore HTTP/1.0

If reviewer.enableByEmail is set for the project, reviewers and CCs are not required to have a Gerrit account. If you POST an email address of a reviewer or CC then, they will be added to the change even if they don’t have a Gerrit account.

If this option is disabled, the request would fail with 400 Bad Request if the email address can’t be resolved to an active Gerrit account.

Note that the name is optional so both "un.registered@reviewer.com" and "John Doe <un.registered@reviewer.com>" are valid inputs.

Reviewers without Gerrit accounts can only be added on changes visible to anonymous users.

Set Review

'POST /changes/{change-id}/revisions/{revision-id}/review'

Sets a review on a revision, optionally also publishing draft comments, setting labels, adding reviewers or CCs, and modifying the work in progress property.

The review must be provided in the request body as a ReviewInput entity.

A review cannot be set on a change edit. Trying to post a review for a change edit fails with 409 Conflict.

Here is an example of using this method to set labels:

Request
  POST /changes/myProject~master~I8473b95934b5732ac55d26311a706c9c2bde9940/revisions/674ac754f91e64a0efb8087e59a176484bd534d1/review HTTP/1.0
  Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8

  {
    "tag": "jenkins",
    "message": "Some nits need to be fixed.",
    "labels": {
      "Code-Review": -1
    },
    "comments": {
      "gerrit-server/src/main/java/com/google/gerrit/server/project/RefControl.java": [
        {
          "line": 23,
          "message": "[nit] trailing whitespace"
        },
        {
          "line": 49,
          "message": "[nit] s/conrtol/control"
        },
        {
          "range": {
            "start_line": 50,
            "start_character": 0,
            "end_line": 55,
            "end_character": 20
          },
          "message": "Incorrect indentation"
        }
      ]
    }
  }

As response a ReviewResult entity is returned that describes the applied labels and any added reviewers (e.g. yourself, if you set a label but weren’t previously a reviewer on this CL).

Response
  HTTP/1.1 200 OK
  Content-Disposition: attachment
  Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8

  )]}'
  {
    "labels": {
      "Code-Review": -1
    }
  }

It is also possible to add one or more reviewers or CCs to a change simultaneously with a review:

Request
  POST /changes/myProject~master~I8473b95934b5732ac55d26311a706c9c2bde9940/revisions/674ac754f91e64a0efb8087e59a176484bd534d1/review HTTP/1.0
  Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8

  {
    "message": "I don't have context here. Jane and maybe John and the project leads should take a look.",
    "reviewers": [
      {
        "reviewer": "jane.roe@example.com"
      },
      {
        "reviewer": "john.doe@example.com",
        "state": "CC"
      }
      {
        "reviewer": "MyProjectVerifiers",
      }
    ]
  }

Each element of the reviewers list is an instance of ReviewerInput. The corresponding result of adding each reviewer will be returned in a map of inputs to AddReviewerResults.

          },
        ]
      }
    }
  }

If there are any errors returned for reviewers, the entire review request will be rejected with 400 Bad Request. None of the entries will have the reviewers or ccs field set, and those which specifically failed will have the errors field set containing details of why they failed.

Notifications

An email will be sent using the "comment" template.

If the top-level notify property is null or not set, then notification behavior depends on whether the change is WIP, whether it has started review, and whether the tag property is null.

Note
If adding reviewers, the notify property of each ReviewerInput is ignored. Use the notify property of the top-level ReviewInput instead.

For the purposes of this table, everyone means owner, reviewers, CCs, stars, and ALL_COMMENTS watchers.

Rebase Revision

'POST /changes/{change-id}/revisions/{revision-id}/rebase'

Rebases a revision.

Optionally, the parent revision can be changed to another patch set through the RebaseInput entity.

If the revision cannot be rebased, e.g. due to conflicts, the response is “409 Conflict” and the error message is contained in the response body.

Response
  HTTP/1.1 409 Conflict
  Content-Disposition: attachment
  Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8

  The change could not be rebased due to a path conflict during merge.

Submit Revision

'POST /changes/{change-id}/revisions/{revision-id}/submit'

Submits a revision.

Request
  POST /changes/myProject~master~I8473b95934b5732ac55d26311a706c9c2bde9940/revisions/674ac754f91e64a0efb8087e59a176484bd534d1/submit HTTP/1.0

As response a SubmitInfo entity is returned that describes the status of the submitted change.

Response
  HTTP/1.1 200 OK
  Content-Disposition: attachment
  Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8

  )]}'
  {
    "status": "MERGED"
  }

If the revision cannot be submitted, e.g. because the submit rule doesn’t allow submitting the revision or the revision is not the current revision, the response is “409 Conflict” and the error message is contained in the response body.

Response
  HTTP/1.1 409 Conflict
  Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8

  "revision 674ac754f91e64a0efb8087e59a176484bd534d1 is not current revision"

Get Patch

'GET /changes/{change-id}/revisions/{revision-id}/patch'

Gets the formatted patch for one revision.

Request
  GET /changes/myProject~master~I8473b95934b5732ac55d26311a706c9c2bde9940/revisions/current/patch HTTP/1.0

The formatted patch is returned as text encoded inside base64:

Response
  HTTP/1.1 200 OK
  Content-Disposition: attachment
  Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
  X-FYI-Content-Encoding: base64
  X-FYI-Content-Type: application/mbox

  RnJvbSA3ZGFkY2MxNTNmZGVhMTdhYTg0ZmYzMmE2ZTI0NWRiYjY...

Adding query parameter zip (for example /changes/…​/patch?zip) returns the patch as a single file inside of a ZIP archive. Clients can expand the ZIP to obtain the plain text patch, avoiding the need for a base64 decoding step. This option implies download.

Query parameter download (e.g. /changes/…​/patch?download) will suggest the browser save the patch as commitsha1.diff.base64, for later processing by command line tools.

If the path parameter is set, the returned content is a diff of the single file that the path refers to.

Submit Preview

'GET /changes/{change-id}/revisions/{revision-id}/preview_submit'

Gets a file containing thin bundles of all modified projects if this change was submitted. The bundles are named ${ProjectName}.git. Each thin bundle contains enough to construct the state in which a project would be in if this change were submitted. The base of the thin bundles are the current target branches, so to make use of this call in a non-racy way, first get the bundles and then fetch all projects contained in the bundle. (This assumes no non-fastforward pushes).

You need to give a parameter '?format=zip' or '?format=tar' to specify the format for the outer container. It is always possible to use tgz, even if tgz is not in the list of allowed archive formats.

To make good use of this call, you would roughly need code as found at:

 $ curl -Lo preview_submit_test.sh http://review.example.com:8080/tools/scripts/preview_submit_test.sh
Request
  GET /changes/myProject~master~I8473b95934b5732ac55d26311a706c9c2bde9940/revisions/current/preview_submit?zip HTTP/1.0

  Expires: Mon, 01 Jan 1990 00:00:00 GMT
  Content-Type: application/x-zip
  Transfer-Encoding: chunked

  [binary stuff]

In case of an error, the response is not a zip file but a regular json response, containing only the error message:

  "Anonymous users cannot submit"

Get Mergeable

'GET /changes/{change-id}/revisions/{revision-id}/mergeable'

Delete Comment

'DELETE /changes/{change-id}/revisions/{revision-id}/comments/{comment-id}'
'POST /changes/{change-id}/revisions/{revision-id}/comments/{comment-id}/delete'

Deletes a published comment of a revision. Instead of deleting the whole comment, this endpoint just replaces the comment’s message with a new message, which contains the name of the user who deletes the comment and the reason why it’s deleted.

Note that only users with the Administrate Server global capability are permitted to delete a comment.

Deletion reason can be provided in the request body as a DeleteCommentInput entity. Historically, this method allowed a body in the DELETE, but that behavior is deprecated. In this case, use a POST request instead:

'POST /changes/{change-id}/revisions/{revision-id}/fixes/{fix-id}/apply'

Applies a suggested fix by creating a change edit which includes the modifications indicated by the fix suggestion. If a change edit already exists, it will be updated accordingly.

The request parameter reviewed changes the response to return a list of the paths the caller has marked as reviewed. Clients that also need the FileInfo should make two requests.

The request parameter q changes the response to return a list of all files (modified or unmodified) that contain that substring in the path name. This is useful to implement suggestion services finding a file by partial name.

The integer-valued request parameter parent changes the response to return a list of the files which are different in this commit compared to the given parent commit. This is useful for supporting review of merge commits. The value is the 1-based index of the parent’s position in the commit object.

Get Content

'GET /changes/{change-id}/revisions/{revision-id}/files/{file-id}/content'

Gets the content of a file from a certain revision.

The optional, integer-valued parent parameter can be specified to request the named file from a parent commit of the specified revision. The value is the 1-based index of the parent’s position in the commit object. If the parameter is omitted or the value is non-positive, the patch set is referenced.

Request
  GET /changes/myProject~master~I8473b95934b5732ac55d26311a706c9c2bde9940/revisions/674ac754f91e64a0efb8087e59a176484bd534d1/files/gerrit-server%2Fsrc%2Fmain%2Fjava%2Fcom%2Fgoogle%2Fgerrit%2Fserver%2Fproject%2FRefControl.java/content HTTP/1.0

The content is returned as base64 encoded string. The HTTP response Content-Type is always text/plain, reflecting the base64 wrapping. A Gerrit-specific X-FYI-Content-Type header is returned describing the server detected content type of the file.

If only the content type is required, callers should use HEAD to avoid downloading the encoded file contents.

Response
  HTTP/1.1 200 OK
  Content-Disposition: attachment
  Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
  X-FYI-Content-Encoding: base64
  X-FYI-Content-Type: text/xml

  Ly8gQ29weXJpZ2h0IChDKSAyMDEwIFRoZSBBbmRyb2lkIE9wZW4gU291cmNlIFByb2plY...

Alternatively, if the only value of the Accept request header is application/json the content is returned as JSON string and X-FYI-Content-Encoding is set to json.

Download Content

'GET /changes/{change-id}/revisions/{revision-id}/files/{file-id}/download'

Downloads the content of a file from a certain revision, in a safe format that poses no risk for inadvertent execution of untrusted code.

If the content type is defined as safe, the binary file content is returned verbatim. If the content type is not safe, the file is stored inside a ZIP file, containing a single entry with a random, unpredictable name having the same base and suffix as the true filename. The ZIP file is returned in verbatim binary form.

See Gerrit config documentation for information about safe file type configuration.

The HTTP resource Content-Type is dependent on the file type: the applicable type for safe files, or "application/zip" for unsafe files.

The optional, integer-valued parent parameter can be specified to request the named file from a parent commit of the specified revision. The value is the 1-based index of the parent’s position in the commit object. If the parameter is omitted or the value non-positive, the patch set is referenced.

Filenames are decorated with a suffix of _new for the current patch, _old for the only parent, or _oldN for the Nth parent of many.

'POST /changes/{change-id}/revisions/{revision-id} /reviewers/{account-id}/votes/{label-id}/delete'

Deletes a single vote from a revision. The deletion will be possible only if the revision is the current revision. By using this endpoint you can prevent deleting the vote (with same label) from a newer patch set by mistake.

Note, that even when the last vote of a reviewer is removed the reviewer itself is still listed on the change.

Request
  DELETE /changes/myProject~master~I8473b95934b5732ac55d26311a706c9c2bde9940/revisions/674ac754f91e64a0efb8087e59a176484bd534d1/reviewers/John%20Doe/votes/Code-Review HTTP/1.0

Options can be provided in the request body as a DeleteVoteInput entity. Historically, this method allowed a body in the DELETE, but that behavior is deprecated. In this case, use a POST request instead:

IDs

{change-id}

Identifier that uniquely identifies one change. It contains the URL-encoded project name as well as the change number: "'<project>~<numericId>'"

Depending on the server’s configuration, Gerrit can still support the following deprecated identifiers. These will be removed in a future release:

  • an ID of the change in the format "'<project>~<branch>~<Change-Id>'", where for the branch the refs/heads/ prefix can be omitted ("myProject~master~I8473b95934b5732ac55d26311a706c9c2bde9940")

  • a Change-Id if it uniquely identifies one change ("I8473b95934b5732ac55d26311a706c9c2bde9940")

  • a numeric change ID ("4247")

If you need more time to migrate off of old change IDs, please see change.api.allowedIdentifier for more information on how to enable the use of deprecated identifiers.

Suggested fixes for this robot comment as a list of FixSuggestionInfo entities.

RobotCommentInput

The RobotCommentInput entity contains information for creating an inline robot comment.

RobotCommentInput has the same fields as RobotCommentInfo.

RuleInput

The RuleInput entity contains information to test a Prolog rule.

Field Name Description

rule

Prolog code to execute instead of the code in refs/meta/config.

filters

RUN if not set

When RUN filter rules in the parent projects are called to post-process the results of the project specific rule. This behavior matches how the rule will execute if installed.

SubmitInfo

The SubmitInfo entity contains information about the change status after submitting.

Field Name Description

status

The status of the change after submitting is MERGED.

on_behalf_of

optional

The {account-id} of the user on whose behalf the action should be done. To use this option the caller must have been granted both Submit and Submit (On Behalf Of) permissions. The user named by on_behalf_of does not need to be granted the Submit permission. This feature is aimed for CI solutions: the CI account can be granted both permissions, so individual users don’t need Submit permission themselves. Still the changes can be submitted on behalf of real users and not with the identity of the CI account.
